Webstore, Invalid Volume License Key

Why do I receive this error when I try to activate Windows (any Version) for UI owned computers? Error Code: Invalid Volume License Key In order to activate, you need to change your product key to a valid Multiple Activation Key (MAK) or Retail key. Error Code: 0xC004F059 or Error Code: 0xc004f035.

This will occur if the installed version of Windows believes the computer was not shipped from the manufacturer with an existing Windows OS installed.

Please see this link for a more detailed explanation.

As an alternative, a MAK key can be used for activation. MAK keys are available to Campus IT Pros and are part of the Desktop Package for IT Pros offered on WebStore.
